It seemed that every Anise Hyssop plant had several stink bugs on the growing tip. I pruned off the growing tips and dropped them in a pail of soapy water to drown the bugs. The Anise Hyssop should produce new replacement shoots.

Licorice Mint (Anise Hyssop)

Posted by blueberrytalk on July 9, 2010

A distinctive yellow bumblebee visits the Licorice Mint flowers. This plant meets many of the requirements of an ideal plant for bees. It will blossom from now right through to fall frosts. It is a favorite of bumblebees and honeybees. It produces above average amounts of nectar. For sure we will gather seeds from this year to expand our planting for next year.
